Dear members,

Regulatory developments in asset management and investment funds are evolving rapidly across the globe, not least due to the global disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. In this context, we have collected a range of articles from our diverse and widespread membership on specific developments in their jurisdictions. Please note that IBA members no longer need to sign in to access these articles, as they are now open access.

Due to the pandemic, it was unfortunately not possible for the Annual International Conference on Private Investment Funds to be held in London earlier in March 2020, or for the Annual Conference on the Globalisation of Investment Funds to proceed in New York in May 2020. However, we were delighted to see so many members join us for our inaugural webinar on 1 June 2020, entitled Regulatory responses and challenges to the crisis for the asset management industry.

We hope to hold further webinars in September and November 2020. The November webinars are in place of the asset management-focused panels that the Committee would typically host at the IBA Annual Conference and cover topics related to accessing Latin American investors and markets. Please look out for details of these events in due course.

We look forward to seeing you all again in person at the next Annual International Conference on Private Investment Funds in London, in March 2021, and the next Annual Conference on the Globalisation of Investment Funds in New York, in May 2021.  

 

Kind regards,

Francois Rayroux

and

Christian Schmies
